Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: livenessProbe fails when prometheus is under heavy load, such as WAL replay. Consequence: Prometheus gets restarted, exasperating the load issue due to repeated WAL replay. Fix: Remove livenessProbe. Result: Heavy load no longer causes the livenessProbe to fail in turn avoiding restart loops.
